INTRODUCTION

There is crucial requirement of light weight material in automotive, marine, and aerospace industries to save fuel consumption which lead to environment impact. Best example of these materials are fiber reinforced polymer composites. They are made using various techniques. Testing of properties of these materials also some how different from traditional materials. In this course, basic knowledge is provided on fiber reinforced polymer composites which can be helpful for engineers, technicians, consultants and researcher for future advancement in industries.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Learn the basic knowledge of the polymer composites
  • Fabrication and testing techniques of the polymer composites
  • Learn the analytical methods of the polymer composites
  • Understand the basic structural health monitoring of the polymer composites

COURSE CONTENT
